While perusing Pinterest, I discovered Book Spine Poetry!

What is it?

It’s stacking books on top of each other so that the writing on the spines form a poem — and it’s A LOT harder than it looks.

I literally sat in front of my bookshelf for about an hour, pulling books off the shelf, stacking and re-stacking them…..but ALAS! I somewhat successfully made three book spine poems:

What If?

01970312bbc3bb22ca72e827a815b7051d7c1c8d27

What If
The Merciless
Consequences
Never Fade (?)

***

Reckless

01239281d5e76ded83327d2fa1a279d476162e745f

Shatter me,
You
Beautiful Disaster

***

Night Life

01d76e50a2a374c1cec4691555b62ed31296c4221c

Warm Bodies
Taken at Dusk
Dance with the Devil
In the Afterlight

***

What If? is meant to portray existential anxieties

Reckless is, well, reckless! Lustful recklessness

Night Life was mostly inspired by the modernist poem’s I’ve been reading that touch on how city night life (at the time) is new, mysterious, and morally ambiguous

Anyway – let me know how I did!
